Aren’t All Real Estate Agents REALTORS®?

This seems to be a misunderstanding for the majority of buyers and sellers out there, they think all real estate agents are REALTORS®. When in reality there is a difference that can change the results of your experience working with an agent.

Every real estate agent is licensed under the state in which they hang their license, but only 56% of those licensed agents are allowed to call them-selves a REALTOR®. The difference is they are members of the Nation Association REALTORS®, one of the largest trade organizations in the country, with over 1 million members.

To be apart of the association they must adhere to a strictly enforced code of ethics, which is summarized in the link, while other agents have no such code. To read more visit National Association of REALTORS® website.
